Explore our Cohorts

LifeCourse cohorts are separated into two broad groups:

  • Population-based “Population” cohorts
  • Condition-specific or case-control “Clinical” cohorts

Explore a bird’s eye view of our cohorts below:

  • An interactive timeline under ‘Years active’ shows how long each cohort has been active
  • Browse and compare data collected across cohorts in select domain summaries

Want to know more about a particular cohort? Delve in deeper on each cohort’s page to explore their design and data collections, including what measures have been used to capture relevant LifeCourse constructs.
